Thank you for the kind words. Yes the burgers are good. All home made with fresh ground beef and spices. Also we make the chilli in house as well.

Wonderful breakfast at this place - we both had the omelette and a side order of pancakes. Breakfast includes coffee and we found that it was very good. Service is great too. Hope to return next time we are in Orillia.
